Get the Look … Double the fun!

Check out this week's beauty tip from our makeup maven, Rhonda of Faces by Rhonda!

The key to fabulous makeup is being innovative and creative with products you already have. Every woman yearns for that perfect matte nude lip, a chic dewy cheek or a bronzed sun-kissed glow. Creating these looks can be fun and resourceful, making your makeup work double duty.

Matte Nude Lip…Conceal IT: Not only is your concealer useful for hiding under eye circles and balancing uneven spots, but you can spread it across your lips and blend it in with your foundation. This will create a nude sexy matte lip that many celebrities such as Beyonce and JLo are rocking these days. Pair it with a dramatic smokey eye for a glamorous night on the town.

Chic Dewy Cheek…Smooch IT: One of the hottest trends in makeup is the dewy blushed cheek. It’s a natural, slightly wet look that is popular amongst Hollywood’s A-List celebrities such as the Kardashian sisters and Lindsay Lohan. To create this look, grab a damp makeup sponge or brush and apply a few strokes of your favorite lipstick to it. Apply the brush or sponge to the apple of your cheek moving in an upward motion towards the hairline. To give this look a radiant glow, apply a highlighter or shimmery eye shadow over the top of the apple of the cheek. This look is versatile taking you from the beach to the nightclub!

Sun-kissed Glow…Eye IT: One of the sexiest looks on the block is sun-kissed bronzed skin. Instead of buying a bronzer, go into your makeup bag and pull out your favorite bronze eye shadow. Grab a damp sponge or brush and apply the eye color to your T-Zone (Forehead, bridge of nose and cheeks) and jawbone.  Once you fall in love with the look, shop around for a great bronzer that blends well with your skin giving it a natural glow.
